What would this be, then - the b-sides show?

Like a man who keeps giving you his homemade parsnip wine in the mistaken belief that you like it, Ben Elton has started writing another bloody Queen musical. Using songs that he couldn't hammer over and over into the plot of the first (Killer Queen lives under the seven seas of rye sends radio ga-ga, or something), he's going to run up another two hours of theatrical time filling.
Really, this trend is getting so ridiculous it can only be a matter of time before Birds of a Feather team Marks and Gran come up with Don't Walk Away In Silence, a musical that tells the tale of Ian Curtis' life through the songs of Joy Division.
